Met up with risax
this evening for much manga-doujin-sharing and love
. Omi and Val introduced me to this absolutely gorgeous series about a fox spirit, and it is so pretty
and so pretty
and I am completely sold
. ♥ Thank you so much! It was so much fun, and we should totally do it again! ♥ Milo Ventimiglia in Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" video
. I could cry
! I was watching MTV tonight when this horror
of Peter Petrelli slumming it up as Fergie's tattooed and extremely shirtless boyfriend turned up on the TV, and I was torn between great joy (Peter's my favourite) and great horror -
Go back to big brother, idiot!
. You can watch the video here
At around the same time I made this discovery, I found out that there is ice-skating anime
- in particular, Ginban Kaleidoscope
. To quote the summary off the direct download site
it's like Hikaru no Go, but with ice-skating! Quoted summary begins here:
"Sakurano Tazusa is a beautiful and gifted figure skater, but because of her highhanded character and venomous tongue, she is hated by other people. In these days, she cannot display her true ability at the competitions, and she continues failing. One day, when the next Olympic’s delegation selection process is at the final stage, she is haunted by a Canadian ghost. At first, Tazusa refuses him, but gradually she begins to open to him, and she works hard to be chosen as an athlete of Turino Olympic."
Just so you get an idea of what kind of series this is (as if you actually needed any more of a clue than you already have from the summary itself, have some artwork! It makes me all XD that the guy possessing her is all blond and blue-eyed and named Pete. XD
Blond, blue-eyed, walks around with halo! I am so sold!
Pity the main character's a girl of the sort I won't watch. XD
The series is subbed by Conclave
and is also available off scarywater bittorrent
. Partial episode guide and series summary here
, and a summary of episodes 1-3 here
Also! Thanks to a new post on blades_of_glory
, it has come to my attention that there are new pictures on the Blades gallery
